Royal Recipe: Kickstart Coffee Smoothie
Coffee isn’t a wholesome breakfast? Not necessarily. In combination with the right ingredients, it provides your body with all the important nutrients – and incidentally also wakes you up.
Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper. That’s what they say. But what if you don’t have time for an opulent breakfast in the morning? In this case, all the king has is coffee, followed by a sudden mid-morning drop in energy. We can fix this – with a Kickstart Coffee Smoothie. Quickly prepared and with a good amount of caffeine, it’s fit for a king with a full schedule ahead of him.
No excuses: breakfast in just 2 minutes
Our Kickstart Coffee Smoothie doesn’t just wake you up, it provides the perfect basis for a strong start to the day. Vitamins, fibre, minerals: the morning booster pumps all that and more through your body. And the best thing? The smoothie is ready in just 2 minutes.
The Kickstart Coffee Smoothie can also be used for something else, however. Thanks to the extra amount of protein and ingredients such as oats, banana and almond butter, the smoothie is ideal for athletes. The additional caffeine kick gives you an improved performance for endurance training. One of many reasons to drink coffee more often…
